the red tricycle brigade.

I love how images have the ability to transport us back to a moment in time, and bring up memories that are hidden deep within our mind. This particular photo (courtesy of Ryan McGuire / brings me back to when I was about three years old. I decided it would be a good time to bring my independent and adventurous side to life, so I snuck out, hopped on my red trike, and took a joy ride around the block on my own. Needless to say, I may have freaked my parents out immensely, but I also made a significant statement – I am a force to be reckoned with.
